CryoFall

It was revealed today that Daedalic Entertainment has picked up the publishing rights to AtomicTorch Studio's upcoming multiplayer survival RPG CryoFall (volume warning). The game will allow up to 200 players to fight for survival in an open-world environment. Similar to games like Ark players will have to deal with the dangers of the wilderness as they engage in forming economies, crafting goods, providing services, farming with "complex growth simulations," crafting maps, and more. In fact, the game places a much larger focus on fighting logistics' issues than it does on fighting players.

CryoFall is set on an "unknown planet" in sci-fi tinged distant future scenario. It will enter into Steam Early Access on April 3, 2019. I'm going to assume that there are going to be some growing pains at the start as the team works to ensure the servers can run 200 players at once without issue.

And now, the big part of the news post that includes a bulk of the press release including a list of CryoFall's features. But first, check out the game's trailer and screenshots.

CryoFall drops players into the rather unsafe shoes of a spaceship crash survivor. Encountering dozens of others along the way, the aim is both to discover the hidden and mysterious story behind the planet beneath your feet, as well as - of course - navigating the many perils in your path.

Players will join servers capable of supporting up to 200 characters simultaneously, with each one evolving to create a unique world and, in turn, gameplay experience.

“We wanted to create a game where you don't just compete with other players over trivial matters like resources," reveals Valentin Gukov, CryoFall’s game designer. "With its deep features and focus on economy, agriculture, exploration, a compelling environment and more, CryoFall goes beyond that. It offers players lots of freedom on how they can interact with one another. At its core, this game is not about fighting, but creating a new world together!”

Brilliantly delivered in 2D, players can cooperate to create their own cities, establish active economies and industries, or pillage what other survivors have managed to put together.

CryoFall features:
  • Complex crafting and industrial system, including oil refining and lithium extraction.
  • Various stages of technological progress (primitive, industrial, modern, post-modern, sci-fi).
  • Farming with complex crop growth simulation, fertilizers, etc. and diverse cooking options.
  • Wide range of player interactions and roles with specialization options emphasizing meaningful interactions rather than just combat.
  • Economy with coin minting, complex trading and automated vending machines managed by players.
  • Carefully handcrafted maps and locations (plus map editor).
  • Storyline elements discovered through exploration.
  • Diverse environments with several biomes (temperate, desert, tropical, boreal, wasteland, etc.).
  • In-house developed Renkei Engine™, allowing hundreds of players on the same server.
  • Complex character simulation with several dozens of status effects (e.g., bleeding, poisoning, radiation, etc.).
  • Extensive modding capabilities, including real-time code editing.
